Hallberg Rassy 340
Hot on the heels of the Hallberg Rassy 44 (in boating terms at least), and in a similar vein, is the Hallberg Rassy 340. With twin rudders and wheels, folddown transom, integral bowsprit and large, clear coachroof and hull windows, she’s the spitting image of her big sister. As standard she comes with a tiller, but I suspect most owners will opt for twin wheels.
Below deck there’s an L-shaped galley next to the companionway and tucked a little aft to starboard. While there’s an electrical panel to port, she has no chart table as standard – the space gained is brought into the saloon. The heads is situated forward, aft of the forecabin with its vee-berth.
On deck, the mainsheet comes down to a small track on the cockpit sole. There’s also a large cockpit locker to starboard, which should accommodate most of the cruising paraphernalia one would wish to carry on a yacht of this size.
Who would she suit?
A couple, perhaps with a small family or occasional guests, looking to do some coastal and offshore cruising in a high-quality yacht.
Similar to the HR44, the new 340 shares many of her good features
